Running a school in a pandemic has proven to be challenging, yet so rewarding! Our school community has been amazing with erring on the side of safety when it comes to health and safety. We are especially grateful to our substitute teachers who have braved this new COVID environment to support our Huskies! We have all heard of the statewide and national teacher shortage and substitute teacher shortage. In a "normal" year it is difficult to find substitutes, this year has proven to be especially challenging. We owe a debt of gratitude to Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Knight, Mrs. Bunka, Mrs. Nabozny, Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Vetter, and Mrs. Harris. You are essential members of our pack and we are honored to work alongside you! Power of the Pack!
Confirmed Case: A person with laboratory confirmation of COVID-19 infection, irrespective of clinical signs and symptoms.
Parent-Teacher conferences are just around the corner. They are scheduled for Monday, November 23rd, and Tuesday, November 24th. While conference times will remain the same, they will look different this year. Conferences will take place via Zoom. Parents will be sent a link by their student’s homeroom teacher to schedule a time to meet with teachers and staff using Calendly. Conferences will be 10 minutes each.
Monday, November 23rd: 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesday, November 24th: 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Be on the lookout for specifics from your Husky’s homeroom teacher next week!
Elementary HVA students have transitioned to Google Classroom. Virtual students must submit their work through Google Classroom. All assignments are expected to be uploaded through Google Classroom. Teachers will not accept work that is emailed to the teacher.
In addition to the Google Classroom, teachers in the building are videoing their lessons and posting them in Google Classroom. We are asking our HVA families for their patience when looking for videos as they are being recorded while teachers are teaching in person and may be posted at any time during the day. Students should not be completing work prior to watching the instructional videos.
Young 5’s through 2nd grade HVA families,
If you are receiving paper copies for your student to complete, they must be returned each week. It is incredibly important that our teachers are able to enter grades to make sure our families have the most current grade information.
